  • 9th Street, Philadelphia, “The Italian Market,” Philadelphia Day Trip

      9th Street, Philadelphia, “The Italian Market,” Philadelphia Day Trip I don’t know when they started calling 9th Street, Philadelphia  “The Italian Market.” Maybe it was during the 70’s with the coming of the bicentennial.

  • New Jersey Farm Stands – Looking for Apples

    Today, it’s New Jersey Farm Stands – Looking for Apples The mornings of September’s final days warm the air as any day in August.  For the most part leaves are still green.

  • Jimmy John’s Frankfurters, West Chester, PA – Day Traveller

    Jimmy John’s Frankfurters, West Chester, PA – Day Traveller - a  day trip whose goal is nothing more than the all American hot dog. There was no greater connoisseur of the hot dog than my father. To find the finest frankfurter a day trip by car or an hour detour on a regular drive was not […]

  • White Elephant Huntington Valley Thai Restaurant

    White Elephant Huntington Valley Thai Restaurant is a daytraveller must if you are visiting the Frank Lloyd Wright synagogue or Bryn Athyn Cathedral. Stop for lunch or for dinner.

  • Hammonton and Batsto, New Jersey: Blueberries in July

  • City Tavern, Philadelphia, Restaurant Review

    City Tavern, Philadelphia, Restaurant Review City Tavern, Philadelphia,  has risen like the phoenix from its ashes. Built by subscription in 1775, City Tavern’s tables fed the founding fathers.

  • Indonesian Restaurants in Philadelphia

    This review covers two Indonesian Restaurants in Philadelphia:  Indonesia Restaurant and  Hardena Waroeng Surabaya.  This review is something of a Janus. It has two faces: two reviews. The two reviews are dependent upon each other. Both reviews consider Indonesian food. But, let me start from the beginning. I have something of a love hate regard for […]

  • Road to Emmaus and Bethlehem

  • Day Travel to Christiana and Strasburg, PA

    Today’s page is our Day Travel to Christiana and Strasburg, PA. I had been through Christiana once before but I knew little of it.  Strasburg was a town I had actually avoided.

  • Ephrata Cloister and Lititz Chocolate

      Ephrata Cloister and Letitz Chocolate, are my destinations for today’s day trip from Philadelphia with my dogs. Years ago in my early wanderings by car I stumbled across a medieval wonder in the middle of Pennsylvania, the Ephrata Cloister. The image of the irregular wood clapboards of the cloister walls have always echoed in […]
